Week 15: at Los Angeles Rams

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Eagles have been up-and-down this season as a passing game, struggling with protection, turnovers, and offensive balance at various points. Downfield plays have been sparse with rare Nelson Agholor opportunities providing the impact and the field has been squeezed as a result and Philadelphia is a meager 28th in yards per completion and 19th in yards per attempt. The Eagles struggles continue as Carson Wentz will miss this game with a fractured vertebra leaving Nick Foles to step in at quarterback. Foles who was the playoff superstar last season has struggled with consistency throughout his career. Leading the way for the Eagles will be Zach Ertz who is on pace to break the reception record for tight ends in a season, but arguably had his worst game of the season in Week 14 with a mere 38 yards. The Rams passing defense has taken a significant turn for the better over the last two weeks largely due to the return of Aqib Talib. Once a defense that should be picked on, this is now a defense that is one of the strongest in the NFL as Talib who is one of the best corners in football takes pressure off of the struggling Marcus Peters who was being asked to be the number one corner for the Rams. The pass rush on the season has been strong as they have had strong recent sack numbers until their quiet game against the Bears. The Rams are boom-bust with five games allowing less than 200 yards through the air, but five games of at least 30 points. The Rams are also sixth in big pass plays allowed and fifth in touchdowns allowed, but the recent trend should be taken into extreme context as Talib has really only played the last two weeks in which they have allowed 178 yards per game.
